ARIANE MOFFATT w/ FACTS
Ariane Moffatt is an adventurer.

At the heart of her success is that voice, an instrument of arresting intimacy that tugs on your heartstrings as it floats through the atmosphere, at once earthy, ethereal and capable of surprising power.

Yet it was underwater that Moffatt made her grand entrance, splashing onto the scene with her 2002 debut Aquanaute. An entrancing collection of post-trip-hop confessionals blending acoustic and electronic textures, sung just above a whisper, the album struck a chord. It sold 120,000 copies and won three ADISQ Awards (Quebec's Grammys) including Discovery of the Year and Pop-Rock Album of the Year.

Meanwhile, Moffatt was establishing a reputation as a mesmerizing performer, her live show bringing new dimensions to her dreamy sound. The submersive audio-visual experience was captured on the live CD/DVD Ariane Moffatt à la Station C, which appeared in 2005, six months before her second album, Le coeur dans la tête.

Without losing the lightness of her earlier material, the new work surprised with gritty forays into rock, reggae and drum-and-bass. Two things became immediately obvious: this girl can do anything, and fit it all together with her voice.

"It's like I want to master the essence of each kind of groove," Moffatt says. "I feel more creative when I make stylistic clashes, borrowing ingredients from all kinds of things I love."

FACTS - Part of a fresh indie new wave sweeping Vancouver, Facts have stood out playing alongside local buzz bands like Oh No! Yoko, Blood Diamonds and Young Liars, as well as DJ frontmen from the internationally renowned band Beirut. Impressing audiences with their large ensemble, diverse instrumentation and frequent guest performers, Facts are fresh off releasing their first full-length effort, "Like a Living Being," produced by friend and colleague Tom Dobrzanski (Said the Whale, We Are the City) and Shawn Cole (Bend Sinister, The Pack AD). They embark this summer on a Canadian tour featuring an appearance at this year's Live At Squamish festival, featuring The Tragically Hip and Chromeo.
